Dear Carol: I can't make eye contact with people

I have a problem. When I talk to people, I can’t look them in the eye. I don’t want to be known as an insecure...

I'm not that insecure, but i have trouble looking into peoples eyes. I would try and squint and desperately want to look away. When I look in peoples eyes. The whole conversation seems awkward. Lauren T.

I have the same exact problem. When I talk to people, even my best friend, I don't look them in the eyes. I'm not insecure or anything but I just don't like looking people in the eyes. And for me people have pointed it out and stopped me while I talk to tell me that they're not behind them and I try my hardest to look at them but it just doesn't feel right to look people in the eyes.

I can NEVER look into a boys eye.Only for like 3 seconds,then look off somewhere else.How do I stop?


Hey girly,


The best thing to do is not to think about it as "looking in a boy's eye." Think about it like you would if you were looking into your bestie's eye. If you look away, force yourself to look back. It will take some practice but you can do it!

hi! my best friend and i like the same guy. everything was fine until she found out that he likes her and now he knows tht she likes him. How do i win him back? also, i gave him my number and asked him to text me....but he didn't, he texted her instead. Please help! Thnks Smile

Hey Jess,

Eh... prob not a good idea, girl. It's awesome that you aren't discouraged and want to win him back, but you can't force him to like you. And if you try too hard to do so, it'll only make you look bad. Instead, I would let them sort this out. Let them talk and see if they like each other enough to date/make more of this crush. After some time passes, they'll either date, fizzle out, or nothing will happen at all. Either way, stay friends with both of them and support them. That way, if this crush runs its course, you'll be there as a good friend without burning any bridges (aka without ruining any friendships)...and you can flirt a little with him to see if he might have any crush feelings for you Smile

Okay... but what if I have like a SERIOUS problem with eye contact. Every time I try to look someone in the eye, I feel like I'm about to cry. It's so embarrassing! Help!

Hey chica, I am so, so sorry to hear that you are feeling so down on yourself.  Even if you made big mistakes, you have to learn to forgive yourself and make the best of things moving forward.  I think it would be great if you could find an adult you trust that you could talk to.  I understand if it's too tough to talk to your 'rents right now, but you could consider talking to a teacher, counselor, aunt, or grandparent.  It's difficult to do that, I know, but it will be worth it.  If it doesn't work out with one adult you approach, don't give up.  You deserve to get support, no matter what happened in the past.  This article has tips for approaching an adult (doesn't have to be parents!):  xoxo

MOD MOD MODi have a problem with my friend leslie. every single time we see each other we fight constantly. she always points out the unnessicary and is not very supportive of something i really belive in (animal rights). i want to stop being friends but how should i tell her. also, our family already invited her to a premier and its rude to uninvite her but i dont want to even be around her.
what should i do?
p.s my mom will get mad if i ignore her at the premier so how do i talk to her? G

Try talking to her about how you feel about your fighting as of late and how you two can possibly fix things between the two of you. If all else fails you can tell her that you'd like to take a break

If you look at their nose, it will look just as if you are looking into their eyes. Works like a charm!
